Other People's Pantries #50
From Maria, in Dayton, Ohio:
I've really enjoyed looking at everyone else's pantries, and I wanted to share my pantry pictures.
I have one cupboard, located over my main work area and next to the oven, where I keep most of my baking supplies and spices. I like having it all in one space so I'm not running all over the kitchen looking for things. On the other side of the oven, I have a closet with shelves where I keep all of my other staples and canned goods.
Yes, I have a lot of Tupperware (and yes, I like blue!). When my youngest was a baby, I sold Tupperware for two years just so I could get these storage containers to organize my cupboards. We've moved several times in the last 20+ years, and each time I've been able to rearrange them to fit whatever kitchen we had. (Not a sales pitch, since I don't sell them anymore, but just a happy customer. Some of the seals broke over the years, but they were replaced for free). I honestly can't imagine trying to organize any kitchen without them!
I always encourage people to use clear storage containers (I used to use recycled glass jars) whenever possible. It makes it so much easier to create a shopping list when you can see what you need.
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
*Other People's Pantries will be ending soon to make way for a new Saturday feature. However, there's still time to share your pantry photos, so please send them as soon as possible.
